Chemical Pyrimidine Dimers

Name Pyrimidine Dimers
Equivalent Terms Cyclobutane Dimer, Thymine-Thymine | Cyclobutane Pyrimidine Dimers | Cyclobutane-Pyrimidine Dimers | Cytosine Thymine Dimers | Cytosine-Thymine Dimers | Dimers, Cyclobutane-Pyrimidine | Dimers, Cytosine-Thymine | Dimers, Pyrimidine | Dimers, Thymine | Dimer, Thymine-Cyclobutane | Dimer, Thymine-Thymine Cyclobutane | Thymine Cyclobutane Dimer | Thymine-Cyclobutane Dimer | Thymine Dimers | Thymine Thymine Cyclobutane Dimer | Thymine-Thymine Cyclobutane Dimer
Definition Dimers found in DNA chains damaged by ULTRAVIOLET RAYS. They consist of two adjacent PYRIMIDINE NUCLEOTIDES, usually THYMINE nucleotides, in which the pyrimidine residues are covalently joined by a cyclobutane ring. These dimers block DNA REPLICATION.
